Ricky Barnes held the lead after 18 holes in New Orleans at the Zurich Classic, but Boo Weekley and Lucas Glover have already jumped out in front in Round 2.
Easy-to-find greens that were slow due to some rain earlier in the week allowed for some decent numbers: Barnes is in first place at 8-under after a round with seven birdies, an eagle, and just one bogey, with Weekley and Glover right behind him. But both of them have jumped out to strong starts in their second rounds: Weekley has an eagle and a birdie already, and Glover had four birdies and a bogey in his first five holes. They both sit at 10-under.
Barnes tees off at 1 p.m. Eastern, while Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, and Nick Watney -- not a bad pairing -- tee off at 1:30 p.m.. Those off already include Ernie Els (7-under) Rickie Fowler (5-under) and Guan Tianlang (2-over).
Friday's play will be broadcast on the Golf Channel from 3-6 p.m. Eastern.
